What Would Don Quixote Do?

"An internal vision so strong as to see through the illusion of external appearances..."

They’re saying
I’m just some kind of fool
Enumerating
how I’ve been taken to school
Might be breaking
Some of the unwritten rules
Contemplating
what Don Quixote would

It doesn’t really matter
Doesn’t matter what they say
Doesn’t really phase me
If they’re thinking that way
I know what it’s gonna take
I know it — but I’m gonna wait

I’m trying
To keep it all under control
I’m dying
Yes I am dying to know
I hear you sighing
When the west wind blows
Just trying
What Don Quixote knows

It doesn’t really matter
Doesn’t matter what they say
Doesn’t really phase me
If they’re thinking that way
I know what it’s gonna take
I know it — and I can’t wait

I’m finding
What it takes to be loving you
Never minding
What everyone says I should do
Now it’s unwinding
and it all feels a bit unglued
I’ll be trying
What Don Quixote would do

What Don Quixote would do
What would DQ do?

Joel’s Proverbs 1.10 — Faults

Dogs scratch because they’re being bit, because they have a skin irritation, or because they have an internal infection. The odd behavior of people is often because of something beneath the surface.

Joel’s Proverbs 1.8 — Friendship

Goldfish stay at the bottom of the pond when the temperature drops. Sometimes staying together with close friends is safer and healthier than exploring the cold world alone.

Joel’s Proverbs 1.4 — Pride

A real grapefruit is tastier than Tang; Better to disappoint with truth than to create false pride.

Joel’s Proverbs — 1.3

Love treasured compounds daily; neglect loses interest overnight
